I'm a big crafty geek based in Portland, Oregon, USA. I dabble in all kinds of crafts, but these days I'm all about English paper piecing (or EPP for short). It's a very old patchwork technique that starts with paper cut into various shapes. You baste some fabric around each paper template, and then sew them together by hand. The result is perfect matching points with very little effort!

The best thing about living in Tokyo is that it is a big city and depending on the area, the feel, pace and atmosphere can be completely different. For instance, if you like traditional Japanese temples and museums, Ueno or Asakusa are the place to go. If you are looking for an equivalent of Fifth avenue in NYC, with high end shopping, you can find it in Ginza. Shibuya and Shinjuku are famous for its youth orientation. It is very easy to get around with public transportation. Just be sure to have Google Maps ready! Also, if you rent a bike and get around that way, you can see very up close and personal.
